gpu Radeon HD 6670 or Palit GF GTS 450 1gb/128bit ddr3
psu FSP Blue Lightning 500w
hdd wd blue 1tb
case cooler master 430
The build here just fits the budget, i want to know if the build is balanced or if it will work. i need feedback on the combination of this parts, is the mobo 'weak' ram too big or wont be supported? any feedback will be ok.
This build is for video editing (adobe premiere), thats why i chose the i5 2400, although the mobo is relatively cheap, is that ok?
This will also be for gaming as well but im not hoping it can handle high settings, i will settle with medium graphics settings.
I also need help on the video card choice, these 2 are on the same price level but im not sure if which one will be better for gaming and video editing. maybe someone can comment on this or suggest another option on the video card (must be same price level.
the reason why i considered a nvidia card is because of the cuda tech for video editing, does it really matter? or the hd 6670 is already sufficient?
havent bought anything and the budget is around less than 600USD
I think ur best bet will be this combo right here http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite...
for 185 after MIR. Mobo has socket AM3+ so it's good for next gen AMD CPU - Bulldozer.
So then let's say u spend another 185 on decent GPU.
case -50, HDD - 60, RAM - 40, PSU - 60 comes to 580 total
Let me know if u need help choosing other components
With that motherboard (specifically the chipset) installing a dedicated GPU will disable the QuickSync feature. The only chipset that supports QuickSync with an external GPU is the Z68. It also supports a neat SSD caching feature.
don't listen to him
It's a mobo feature to support Quick Sync not CPU. Also Asrock quality is way better then crappy Biostar that u suggested. And Z68 mobo that u listed will not let u overclock more then 4Ghz (or even less then that) especially for a cheap one.
